Here are some great photos of Tina Fey that one of our volunteers snapped a few weekends ago of her at her new home on the island.

Tina was one of those dogs that came from the LA rescue Ace of Hearts in 2010. She was in danger of being euthanized as a senior with a massive mammary tumor. Here she is with her her “Big” sister Keesha.

Also, a few weeks ago we recieved an update from Sporty Bud's new home!

Hi Carol,

Just wanted to let you know Buddy has settled today; I quickly realized on the ride home that I needed to sit in the back seat with him and he didn't take his eyes off the road - I guess he wanted to make sure he knew the path back! After a tour around the house and yard we just tried to keep to our regular routine and let him find his comfort with all of us. It has taken him a bit to get used to Blair in fact he took a wide berth around him for a good part of the day - I suspect he hasn't had the best of relationships with men in the past. He had a good nap and ate all his dinner tonight so that is a good sign. He had an early connection with my niece and it didn't take long for him to test out her bed. He is a lovely dog and we thank you for trusting us with his care. Will keep you posted on how he is doing.

Love happy endings. Tina Fey was my little love. So glad she is happy but missed her.Those dogs that came from LA were the sweetest bunch. Poor little Prince was so fragile.


Good to hear Renee. He is such a good mellow boy. Give him a brush and a smooch on the head for me

Kate, the Wild Birds Unlimited stores in Chilliwack and Abbotsford have some neat things. Or maybe some of the garden/nursery stores. Save-in Foods/Pricemart/Coopers Foods also had some cute seasonal things, but I'm not sure what they would have left by now. I got a couple of nice ones at London Drugs a couple of years ago. Dollar stores carry them too. You have to shop around.
Good luck finding that special remembrance item for them.


tina-fey is so cute, glad shes a happy girl! and sporty buddy, what a great dog. so lucky, those two.

There is also the West End Vancouver Yard Sale - Saturday July 13th - 10am to 4pm - Lord Roberts Elementary School grounds. Proceeds go to SAINTS Rescue - any unsold items are donated to Helga's yard sale on the 20th.

Helga, we will have a shipment of donations for your yard sale - we are bringing them with us on Sunday.


Hi. can anyone suggest a shop in the area to buy a wind chime, some good friends lost their Rotti yesterday, I have always thought it is such a heartfelt tribute, since seeing at one of your open houses a few years ago and would like to do the same for them. thank you for any help.
